At the same time, I would like to thanks to Smoky Wok (formerly Tastes of Home)who highlighted to me a "no manners person" steal my photo and recipe (an example of my original recipe and photo). This is not the first website that copied my posts, but those at least link back to my blog (they just copy and paste the photo and recipe). But this time, this "no manners person", take my photo, trim to smaller size, write a simple message, made minor changes to my recipe, and turned to become her/his post!!
I cooked, took photos and spent time posting my recipes, but this "no manners person" just take the credit, this is teribble! I feel like want to close my blog...
To my blogger friends, please go and check this site, your photos and recipes might be stolen too. I going to complaint this case to DMCA.

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Bernice said...

好多的椰丝哦,好吃好吃~
请问你怎么拿倒扣面包出来?

别难过了,我之前也是在FB遇到如此糟糕的人,气死了!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Bernice, I just use a plastic spatula and slowly cut each of the bun out..

Tina said...

Lite Home Bake said...

Priti said...

Honey boy said...

I don't believe there really such a silly body who has the cheek to do such shameless stuff. The food blogging network is big yet we too read about others, there sure bound to be 'Found' if he or she ever ' Steal'.... Sigh ....!

Great buns! Yum yum..!!

Min said...

Sonia, love your coconut bun, so much fillings inside :) That person is terrible la, you should go and complain about this, but never, never close down your blog :)

Radhika said...

Buns and clicks are super good Sonia. So sad that these people do not have it them to be creative and go about lifting content.

lena said...

i just hate it. this is really so unfair..i'm hoping over to no manner's site now.

Sherleen.T said...

i just went to check out the website, so sorry for you.
our beloved Sonia, no matter how angry are u, plz don't close down your blog. i like your blog a lot. your skills, your talent is what people can never steal. and, you always have my support ^^

Lori said...

These will be perfect for making our US Thanksgiving more excited and a bit more international. They sound so good!

Sorry to hear about the content stealing. It's happened to me before as well.

Three-Cookies said...

Thats no good, referring to the person, not the delicious bun! He/she/it took your work because he/she/it thinks its good. Thats the good news, its a pity they don't respect copyright and acknowledge source. He/she/it had lot of fun taking stuff from others, looks like the fun will be short-lived. Lets hope so

Ann@Anncoo Journal said...

Your coconut buns look so delicious, must be very good to be eaten when piping hot.

Yes Sonia, must give these people a good lesson.

Joceline Lor said...

这个面包很美味。是我喜欢的面包。下次我也学做这个。谢谢您的分享哦!

yummylittlecooks said...

So sad to hear this news,terrible people.
BTW, your buns looks so tempting, lots of filling,yum yum.
And don't close your blog, I like reading your blog ^^

Yee Er said...

Sonia,
Hope u feel better now. Shud really teach this person a leason. Me also hate those ppl who like to steal others recipes or photos without acknowledge ppl where the source is, there's really very annoying.

Cheah said...

These buns look good. Have never seen coconut cooked with white sugar before. Yes, must visit this thief's blog. Thanks for the alert!

Little Corner of Mine said...

I tried coconut buns before so I know this is delicious. :)

Oh man, I hope this "no manner person" will take down all the photos and posts that she stole from other bloggers who worked hard to produce.

Anonymous said...

Love your blog! I'm sorry about the content stealing.
Do you mean use all the tangzhong dough (45 g bread flour and 225 ml water) for the buns when you refer to 1 tangzhong dough? Thanks for clarifying.

Torviewtoronto said...

Colin Woon said...

Special request means its really really good! Good job Sonia!

Shame on the person who stole your blog post!

Rachana said...

The buns look perfect. A great recipe.

daphne said...

I'm so glad you pointed it out. That's bad!!! Why will people do that? It's very rude and not respectful of people in the cyberspace.

But on the other hand, I am sure my hubby will request for this too...haha, maybe that means i can get him to get me a stand mixer!!! ;P

Mel said...

Coconut buns is my all time favourite; and I am still buying this at my bakery store near my home. Should I make this myself instead? Thank you for this coconut buns. And really, shame of that person who steal your post photos! Think we should write on that person on his/her comments column.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Anonymous(may i know your name please...), yes, 1 Tangzhong dough is eqaul to 45 g bread flour and 225 ml water.

Somewhere in Singapore said...

Wow, it's so tempting!!!

Ah Tze said...

Sonia, the buns look so cute and lovely! That person is terrible, dare to use other ppl photos. Never never close your blog Sonia!

Mimosa said...

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

I saw this post earlier from my cellphone and I almost died thinking how grate these buns must be. My love of coconut and bread together... If I live near you, I'll be at your door immediately. =) Sorry to hear about your images. I saw it and it's horrible. Jen told me about her experience and it made me mad. I'm working on making a watermark that covers up my photos, but not visible... haha.

cookingvarieties said...

hi sonia, taking without permission is stealing and that's grotesque.
perhaps this kind of thing have been happening without us being aware of it..
your coconut buns looks great and well textured

kitchen flavours said...

Your buns looks wonderful! I love white coconut filling too!
I clicked on the 'no manners person' and guess what, two of my recipes was taken too! They have no shame! No link was provided as to where the recipes was taken, so they are considered stolen!!!

iva | in my kitchen said...

I love coconut buns. we have them here at breadtop and i buy them everytime I visit the shop! love it!

Balakrishna Saraswathy said...

The coconut bun looks super delicious:)

Alice said...

wow...what a great timing! i am now craving for coconut buns too!
same here, i prefer the white coconut filling :)

Angie's Recipes said...

Those look so much better than those from the bakery!

Lisa L. said...

though i'm not a blogger, but i know how you feel. apparently, you're not alone, i saw a familiar post on her site 'korean japhae' n recognised that it was from 'steamy kitchen'. i bet there're more to come. she needs to be 'executed'!!! am i to harsh?!

divya said...

The coconut bun looks super delicious:)

tigerfish said...

The smell of coconut with the bread baking in the oven...must be one of the most wonderful experiences in the kitchen.

Rebecca from Chow and Chatter said...

oh i would request these too yum so sorry about them stealing your recipe dont stop blogging we all love u

Pushpa said...

Beautiful bake,delicious coconut buns.

Christy said...

Lovely buns, even if I am not a real coconut bun fan :) These just looks so fresh, and I bet they taste heavenly too:D

AWWW, I am disgusted with the copycat who obviously had no shame in copying others' posts and photos! I despise them! The very least they could do is ask for your permission, that's MANNERS!
You are right, these are people with NO MANNERS, I am truly disgusted!
I think these people should be warned, did you send them a message or something to tell them to stop copying?

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more said...

I too love the white coconut filling and have been thinking to make these too.

The site's title free delicacies... oredi shows something, I do see a lot of websites that say , "Please copy and paste into your blog" because they steal other's blog post and put it on their site, then let others take as they want. These people won't heed any complains or whatsoever... shame on them. I do have this problem too, they download my whole post into their blog, even my labels are mine, and if you clickon the labels, they come back to my blog. Don't stop blogging for because of these cheapskates.

爱丝特 said...

These buns look absolutely scrumptious! Beautiful images. And I'm so sorry to hear someone stole your photos & recipes...I always wonder how I would know if this happened to me, so it's very kind of that person to let you know.

Thank you for the lovely recipe :-) ~ marie
